My private collection
My private collection is composed with about 600 specimens divided in the followings categories:
- Alpine minerals (250 specimens)
- Italian minerals (250 specimens)
- Worldwide minerals (50 specimens)
- Micromounts (50 selected specimens only from Italian sites)
I like aesthetic minerals in big size (10x10 cm. is the optimum) and generally I prefer Italian minerals. My favourite areas are Piemonte and Valle d'Aosta (my regions), Sardegna, Toscana and Elba island. I collect micromounts only for rare and Italian minerals.
I hope you enjoy with my photos. You can see other specimens on my articles about Monte Bianco and Val Varaita occurences.
